In Narayanganj’s Rupganj, acting president of Upazila Chhatra League and his supporters allegedly vandalised and looted the residence of local Awami League leader and former UP Chairman. 

The incident was reportedly happened at Mitabo area of Rupganj upazila at 3:30pm on Thursday.

Awami League leader and also a former union praishad chairman of Bhulta union Abu Daud Molla made the allegation. 

He said, “Riding on motorbikes, some 35 to 40 persons with arms, including Rashed, Alamin, Alif, Alinur, Masud, Sharif, led by acting president of Rupganj upazila Chhatra League, took position in front of my house at Mitabo due to political vengeance. They also started using abusive language. At one stage, they fired five to six round empty bullets and created panic among the local people. The incident was captured by CCTV camera.”

Later, they entered the house and took the key of almirah from Abu Daud Molla's wife Hosneara Begum with a pistol on her head, he alleged.  

“They looted Tk 11 lakh and eight bhori of gold ornaments kept in the almirah. They vandalised the furniture, including a television set. After the looting, they also threatened to kill me,” complained the former chairman.

Abu Daud Molla said, “Such a heinous incident was committed in a preplanned way because I do politics for the Awami League. I demand exemplary punishment of the wrongdoers.”
